Essar response

We would like to inform you that the Mahan Coal Block was allotted to an equal joint venture between Essar Power and Hindalco. No mining has taken place at the block. Moreover, as per Supreme Court’s order in 2014, the allocation of Mahan block, along with over 200 other, has been cancelled. The block is also not listed for any auction. So there is no question of any displacement, loss of livelihood etc. to indigenous people.
